Shroziq (Language: Country [IPA]), officially the Republic of Shroziq, is a country located in a small peninsula in southern Parshita, bordering Atlia to the west and Curanezan and Tsagon to the north. It was a Shohuanese colony for almost 140 years and still bears cultural and political connections with Shohuan. It is mostly comprised of single urban centre, Sossij, with over 18 million inhabitants in extended metro area, and less developed dependencies. Shroziq, Sossij especially, is rather developed and is the biggest single financial and logistic center east of Vaniu, to a globally major level.

The first Shohuanese trade outpost in the area was settled in 1831, meant as an entrepost for exploration and commerce into Milevia and Lahan. Parshita was, both historically and particularly in that period, profoundly fragmented, and the local ruler, Prince XXX asked for Shohuanese assistance to win local power disputes. Prince XXX then fell into profound debt and dependency of shohuanese resources and his reign was formally annexed to Shohuan in 1834. Throughout the colonial period, Sossij was an important trade hub and natural port, vital to Shohuanese power projection to the east.
In the aftermath of the GEW, the shohuanese government installed cuts on colonial spending and started a policy of gradual emancipation of it's colonial reaches, for Shroziq, this policy culminated in peaceful independence in 1971. After the independence, Shroziq established itself economically with extended entrepôt trade and investment in infrastructure, growing very fast for several decades. At the moment of independence, most residents of Shroziq were foreign born and the government has made many efforts to establish a Shroziqi Identity.
Shroziq is entirely situated in an area of Tropical Monsoon (Am) climate, being hot throughout the year, with distinct, if not incredibly pronounced, wet and dry seasons.
Shroziq is ruled by a democratically elected President, with executive powers, a democratically elected Senatorial Chamber presided by The Senate, which is a title held by a single person, with legislative powers, and a Judiciary appointed by the President.
The political climate in Shroziq is peculiar, with a multi-party system, that has been historically ruled by a Balko-Sannist coalition, focused on the formation and preservation of material and intellectual Shroziqi identity and culture and economically anti-protectionist policies crystallized by the Shroziqi model of entrepôt trade.
Shroziq has no trade embargoes, and displays FTA agreements with several nations, which allows them to exercise re-exportation policies with deeply embargoed states. Shroziq has been historically tied to the Shohuanese sphere of influence and wary of constitutionally pashaist nations, such as neighboring Czisilia.
